. >>> from nbc news, the state of the union address. live from washington, here is brian williams. >> good evening from capitol hill. it is the third time he has spoken to a joint session of congress, but it is the first time as president that barack obama has delivered the state of the union address. it is safe to say it is a different speech than the one he might have delivered a week or so ago before a republican won special election to the seat held by ted kennedy in massachusetts for almost half a century. outside of washington in america, the voters are angry and the president knows it. there is some fury over bailouts and big bankers and big bonuses and no jobs. tonight, at the end of his first year in office, he gets to sum up the job and look at the future. as you can see, the chamber is already filling as members of the cab a net and white house staff file in. the first lady, michelle obama, is greeting her guests in the first lady's box in the gallery. for our coverage, david gregory and andrea mitchell are in the studio. chuck todd across town in the nbc washington new
